It's nice to hear the Pulcinella performed outside of its suite format, and this cd offers the whole ballet score. I can't compare it to other recordings, but the sound here is crisp and distinct, and the vocal soloists generally add to the vibrant harmonies of the small orchestra, rather than detract. Pulcinella is Stravinsky's departure, so to speak, from his early modernist blockbusters like Rite and Patrushka, and his genesis in the neoclassical. It is probably my second favorite of his ballet's. A great piece of art.
The cd also offers another of his later works, a piece that supposedly tried to emulate Bach's Brandenburg Concerti, but seems to me more modernist than neoclassical. Its rhythms sometimes become unruly, a little like the Rite of Spring (a little). All in all, though, this is a good addition to Pulcinella.
The cd closes by playing some of the original 18th century chamber music from which Stravinsky made his Pulcinella.
A good cd all in all.
